    if we allowed members to give their opinions regarding a doctor and/or hospital, beside being potentially lible for the statements, what you would be getting is a personal opinion. And that opinion could be swayed to being either positive or negative based on the personal experiences.

    So, lets say for argument sake, If I stayed at Hospital ABC
    and had a miserable surgery, complications, etc, I would probably give bad reviews about that hospital. The same would apply if while I was at Hospital XYZ, everything went fine so I would praise the place.
    But if you looked the overall reputation, you might find
    that Hospital ABC is one of the top 5 Hospitals in the Nation while, Hospital XYZ has the highest mortality rate post surgery.

    That is just one of the reasons, its best not to name Hospital or Doctors on this forum.
